Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Mission, TX – August 27, 2018
My area included all of South Texas for 4 1/2 years. I got consistent annual reviews and pay raises. I worked my 40 hours in 4 days and I had 3 days off. My boss would hold annual employee picnics for all employees at a state park which included camping, fishing, etc. This is a good company if you like to be an independent technician. The equipment maintenance was easy. The company has made many changes since I left. Techs are no longer required to collect coin bins. Wages have gone up.

You work independently in large service areas with little overtime.
Transport Service Representative (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – March 21, 2018
Very physically demanding. If you don't mind tearing your body apart on the job this is a good fit for you. Never had a raise. Starting salary was very low for what is expected of you. Hours are long and very exhausting. No career advancement unless you are willing to relocate. No one to help you when you need it.

Low pay, a lot of overtime in summer, physically demanding, no career advancement
District Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – January 30, 2018
This company provides you with a great work life balance in which many people long for in this day and time. I worked from home so instead of wasting hours traveling to to work, I was able to go into my home office earlier and work with little to no distractions. Finally, it also allowed me to pick my kids up in the evening.
We learned to work hard and play harder and that was the most enjoyable part of this job. Working as a team on different projects, minimal travel and management was very supportive.
He said unemployment was high, farmers were helpless, education was expensive and medical costs were soaring because the government had not set up new hospitals, corruption was very high and a handful of industrialists and corporates could take away land, water and other resources while the BJP government in the State remained a mute spectator.

Coinstar has been redesigned to be a place for a short sell and worker bees just executing for the executive team. The company has lost its community culture and it was the people that brought me to work each day and now everyone is exhausted.
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – September 20, 2017
Coinstar is an amazing place to work. Many opportunities to do things you wouldn't have access to at other companies. People really seek to do the right thing. The people are the most enjoyable part of the job in addition to the challenging work.
Fast paced, challenging, great people
Private equity owned, so will be selling within a 3-5 year window
Field Technician (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – June 5, 2017
Coinstar is without question the most demanding, and difficult job I have ever had. The pay and benefits package was pretty good, no question there, however what they expect from an individual is brutal, and quite frankly ridiculous. The responsibilities they place on you is way more than what one person can physically do. When they tell you that you basically have carte blanche with overtime, while every single other person within your district must ask for OT prior to taking it, then you know that you have it harder than everyone else. I lasted over six years with the company, which was way longer than any other technician before me, in this marketplace. This position is geared for a young, and extremely energetic individual.
Corporate Installation Manager (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – May 15, 2017
In my 17 years at Coinstar, I was always given opportunities to learn and grow both within the company but also with company provided seminars and classes. The culture was one of collaboration and encouragement for one another.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Pasco, WA – April 9, 2017
Great job with good benefits. Management was okay, but they are not very flexible with your schedule. Made it hard to work when other responsibilites popped up. Also they made it very hard to focus with so much crosstraining
Field Technician (Former Employee) – Beaumont, TX – March 16, 2016
Driving from store to store doing repairs and preventative maintenance and upgrades
I learned that excel was more than just adding and subtracting numbers, it was great to do a lot of things- like making a spreadsheet to keep track of who had Capital expenditure and to have them sent back with in 30day.
It was good to see my co-workers since we all worked in different city and towns, but we did communicate every day and we learned from one anther
The hardest part of my job was the day they told me that they were doing a reduction of force and I was on the list after 14 years.
I enjoyed are district annual weekend get together.
